Who will win Sixers vs Thunder?

A mark of how well these two sides are going can be summed up by looking at their scores conceded. Of the top 25 scores conceded in the Big Bash this season, none of them have come against the Thunder and only 1 of the top 15 has come against the Sixers.

The Thunder also have 3 of the top 9 scores with the bat and the Sixers own the highest score of the season when they amassed 4-213 against the Stars in December.

The Sixers have been a little less effective with the bat in the new year, with consecutive losses to Perth taking the edge off their form a fraction. They did demolish the Renegades this week but this match poses a stiffer challenge.

The Thunder have the hot hand and we'll be tipping them here.
